First of all, listen to this song by Tom Morello. It’s great — and catchy as all get out.
Yesterday someone with Working America knocked on my door to ask me to vote for their candidate in our upcoming primary. I told him I was already voting for him.
We started talking, and I asked him what kind of response he was getting. “Very positive,” he said.
“Really?” I said, pleased. He reminded me that he was only visiting houses that had a union affiliation. (Which, in my neighborhood, is a lot.)
He said the union voters he’d visited were watching “everything” very closely. “They’re paying attention to everything, they don’t like what’s going on, and not just locally.”
Yes, union members tend to be a lot smarter about what’s going on. That’s why the bosses hate unions.
